Teenagers Killed in New Orleans


Four teenagers in New Orleans are now crime statistics in one of the country's most violent cities.
In the last five days four teens all fifteen years old or younger have been shot and killed in New Orleans.
The latest victim is a 13-year-old boy who was shot after getting off a school bus.
Police say he was caught in the crossfire of two groups firing at each other.
Last Friday night, 15-year-old Brandon Adams was shot and killed,
At a gathering to remember Adams, his mother said she's trying to come to grips with her son's murder.
"As a mother you want to fix all your kids problems. Well, how can i tell my other four babies, 'mama can't fix this one,’" says Adams.
With 65-murders this year, New Orleans is well on its way to reaching last year's murder rate which was 199.

    I wonder why we worked to recover it after Katrina. We should have let it go to swamp.Someone told me it was worse than that place that was destroyed in the Bible because of wickedness, Sodem and Gomarr, I think was the place.God allowed New Orleans to be destroyed, we should have left it that way.
